The trick lies in the 'we' I believe, not everyone who self-identifies
as a hacker(space) seems to care much about privacy in their direct
environment or not on that level.

There are also spaces that have a camera feed but obfuscate the stream
or have a way of turning it off when/before entering.

Personally, I'm quite interested in ways of 'connecting' hackerspaces
without having to do video feeds, outside of the privacy issue, it seems
a rather boring/non-creative approach.
